Waves: Photos By David Orias
Amazing series of long exposure shots of waves by California-based photographer David Orias.
I am a photographer with a predilection for early morning light. To our eyes most is dark colors and shadows, but to the camera using long exposures, we are shown the beauty of the scene.
I enjoy panning the camera to catch motion in a way our eyes cannot see it. This goes for my surfing photos as well as my wave photos.
Southern California has its fire season and sometimes this creates conditions of eerie orange light in the morning as the sunlight is filtered and scattered by smoke particles. This creates unusual and to some viewers unrealistic colors. I take the baseline colors and work with them to create a fine art appeal.
